Man United have already approached Shakhtar Donetsk over their talented midfielder, Georgiy Sudakov.

Manchester United Football Club are gearing towards their most important summer transfer window in ages. We’re finally going to be given a glimpse at how Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS will operate. With money already tight due to Premier League Profit and Sustainability rules, the powers-that-be will have to use their money wisely.

Several names have already been linked with a move to Old Trafford over the last couple of months. No doubt the stories will continue to ramp up. Today, TEAMtalk have thrown another new name into the mix; Georgiy Sudakov.

According to their latest information, Chelsea are leading the way for the signature of the man from Ukraine. However, United are already ‘sounding out’ his club, Shakhtar Donetsk, for the signature of the 21-year-old midfielder. Arsenal have also already made contact.

His performances are starting to catch the eye of some of the biggest clubs in Europe, too, with Napoli and Juventus also credited with interest.

As things stand, United seem to be on the periphery of any deal to sign Sudakov, which when you consider Shakhtar want £85m minimum for the midfielder, is understandable. The whole reason behind hiring INEOS was to start spending the money more wisely. This feels like a roll of the dice for a player who is still so young in footballing terms.

This isn’t me calling Sudakov a flop. For all we know, he could go on to achieve great things. However, for every Fernandinho or Fred from the Ukrainian league, there’s a Mykhailo Mudryk. It’s a gamble. For that reason alone, I’d be surprised if United made this deal happen.

Do you think a Man United move for Georgiy Sudakov would make sense? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
